“I take this opportunity to remind the public, but especially workers who routinely interact with the public, to avail themselves of the free testing at Southside,” said the Minister of Health Kim Wilson. “In particular hairdressers, barbers, hospitality workers, waiters and persons working in retail would benefit tremendously from knowing their status.”
“The Ministry of Health reminds the public that testing spots are available at the Southside COVID-19 drive-through on Thursday between 10am and 7pm and Saturday and Sunday 9am to 1pm, in the car park of the former White’s grocery store. Drop-ins are welcome when spots are available but to ensure access persons should book online here.”
